In our globalised world, much of what we eat is grown, processed and/or prepared in distant countries, often by the poor. Our ethically-scrupulous philosophy breakfast will include your choice of a delicious locally-sourced bap fresh from Boston Tea Party, and a coffee from South America or a tea from India.
Is it possible to eat ethically in such a world? Is buying local the answer if it means depriving farmers in the developing world of export crops? With so much fair work done by migrant workers, does increased agricultural self-sufficiency require accepting our on-going need for workers from elsewhere? Do farm workers enjoy the same conditions as other workers? If not, why not?
Join philosopher Julian Baggini and the University of Bristol’s Lydia Medland to unpack the moral dilemmas involved in eating ethically in the wealthy West. The ethical consequences of our food choices often seem distant but Medland’s work on the role of seasonal workers in global food production in Morocco and Spain – providers of much of what fills our supermarkets’ shelves – shows it is very close indeed.
There will be short talks and plenty of opportunity for discussion.
